“A healer is not someone that you go to for healing. A healer is someone that triggers within you your own ability to heal.”
I regularly have clients coming into the clinics wanting me to “fix” them. As much as I love to help people on their road to recovery, the term suggests that the work of healing is the purview and responsibility of the therapist, not the client.
Ultimately, it’s a question of power. It’s not as if there were something in the healer that allowed the healing to occur.
As a Therapist, I can do all manner of interventions. I can assist the body in freeing restrictions both physical and non. I can bring awareness to problems, enhancing the body’s ability to heal itself.
To ask someone to fix you suggests that you are broken, that you lack the ability to heal yourself. In fact, you are the only one with the ability to do so. I can create and hold a space for this to happen and I can help in myriad ways. I’ve built a career out of helping people feel and move better, and I’m good at it. Positive outcomes are consistent and reliable. Relief often comes in minutes, not years.
That said, there are many aspects of a client’s healing process that are simply out of my hands. That’s why I can use similar techniques on two similar clients and get variable outcomes. People show up at the clinic at various stages of their healing journey, and I’m not just referring to the body. I’m including the mind and spirit as well. Sometimes people show up with other healing work that needs to be done first, with me or someone else. Sometimes people simply aren’t ready.
